comments. >> next speaker. >> good evening and welcome sergeant. >> good evening intern chief and to director joyce hicks this evening i'm standing before you as is a loved one williams i'm concerned about several things how can we expect to get to the three hundred plus recommendations presented by the doj and the blue ribbon panel and can't get though the removal of shooting at the vehicles the doj has made it clear they'll not accept that type of language in the use of force order how can we get to through 1/3rd of recommendations that are presented with the union it continues to resist change the process lacks transparent and seems to be substantive
8:13 am
not to mention allegations of commissioners speaking pubically and posturing and stating who they want to be the next chief this is inappropriate we must stop right now we must show that we representative reform we must show we support transparent what i want to do the right thing in the eastbound selection of the next chief the chief i've stated need to be one that has a proven track record and is a viable candidate that will be of our interest to everyone i stand before you also extremely troublgd by the san francisco chronicle news article that reelevated some of the candidates locations of where we come from that is very concerning i know your concerned about it and again, i hope that your good evening to provide us with measurements that will help to explain has to how and where
8:14 am
we are in the process and again, thank you for 2350d me the opportunity to speak before you. >> thank you, sergeant williams. >> good evening and welcome. >> thank you my name is huey a local hip hop community activist in the community for several years and happen to be a friend of notorious there is a big issue of police training i'd like to ask chief chaplin when will proper police training into effect we have a systemic violence from police throughout the country i understand that daily city is different maybe protocol but hopefully push that through i believe that gregory by sfpd that is very, very strange he's 130e7d to be here
8:15 am
speaking on our cause on our on behalf but suddenly his house is rated and now like i'll call this the super hero police are 0 supposed to be super heroes but cops killing unarmed black men an epidemic and a little been like this people blaming on cell phones that is a piece of that but lastly there's a sense of rage and hatred it permeates through the plod we have an incidents you you know white guys with guns threaten cops they're not killed they beat the case between the cops dealing with people of color and white people and so-called model minorities that
8:16 am
is you know something that needs to be changed and police need to be changed and police culture changed you guys need to work on many at some point that is coming to a head i'd like to see the problem resolved in the most positive is position for both sides to get on with the business policing is a tough job but - >> yeah. thank you, sir. >> good evening and welcome. >> aclu sergeant williams said a lot of what was said in a letter from jeff adachi and jennifer and myself that appears in the agenda that i and we will leave this room not knowing the status of use of force policy and not knowing even though a impasse is declared and even
8:17 am
though cops have basically labored co-authored restraint and the shooting of vehicles a bad practice we at san francisco still are living other than the policies that are labeled bad practices i'm really surprised on the working group your proceeding in the way your preceding it is very mystifying i believe that is sabotaging captain laid out a very infest and complicated program dealing with 2 hundred plus recommendations chief chaplin wrote a letter asking for community support those of us in the community and stakeholders who will have been working with you on this discouraged and i really am i was sure that was on the action agenda the fact your
8:18 am
heading into closed session again is mystifying didn't require i don't know you're doing this. >> thank you, sir. >> next speaker. good evening and welcome. >> good evening to heck with that david san franciscans for police accountability i'd like to echo what allen and yolanda williams said the entire of us situation is a could tropic we said at the original meeting our procedures were chaotic that has been
8:19 am
completely played out what hastening sued since the sunshine committee has slapped you on the wrist for not rooelgs the documents head of time 72 hours so the community can have a chance to look at it secondly, at the meeting you were to have a deal with the poa we've not forgotten martin there was an agreement the 20 percent was the only thing left and months later on a use of force you guys tell the poa this is the next policy and intern chief chaplin can issue a codifying of the use of force policy you vote on unanimously on june 22nd and we can have a working use of force policy a modern one of the new
8:20 am
one so much effort went into within 48 hours there is nothing stopping you equip your intense fear of poa your intense fear of going up against them they're a group of bullies that have been bullying in commission for years you guys need to get some ovaries to have. >> i'm quite certain i have them i'll give you 30 seconds more. >> you guys need to get a backbone and begin dealing with that relocation union the way it should be dealt with forcefully. >> thank you. next speaker. >> good evening and welcome. >> how you doing a resident the ingleside district we didn't have questions about what can

the police do they know what they can do whaumz now this is your opportunity here to make a difference whaumz at the end of the day it is in your lap tifrd and my question is: now what is the status an gregory is he in custody and what is he in custody he was not part of that situation you know what i mean so why is this man's house you know what i mean is a bigger plan than what was going on you know what i mean what radio you going to do or the ones that change with the operation you hear me real talk man, you just like me brother so we - i

8:26 am
years opened an banana clips into two unarmed civilians for whatever cause they didn't have weapons i think a new police chief has to look at that i don't know who he is or where he is but i think sir, you should start bringing him before the public secondly, a person in a building i don't know why the public has to be let in by the backdoor and a private party in the front door and 17 sheriff's acting as thugs we're not allowed in the building we have to use is janitorial indigents and public building to be available to the public for any event anywhere we shouldn't have to use the backdoor and owen i ought to do

that is deesclation how are we helping our officers to calm the situations not just safer for the public but safer for our officers the city can't afford morally or economically another death the poa recommendations to get 24 order implemented and the training underway on the deesclation so all our stakeholders hard work all of our research 24 doj has been approved by you on june 21st has - is completely squared with the department of justice and we're not there yet less us know how we can help you. >> don't compromise please. thank you, ms. chang>> next speaker. >> good evening and welcome. >> ms. young. >> good afternoon. i'm the deputy public defender i'm here

8:39 am
they did they saw their suspect get into a car driven by an individual and missed 17 years old a teenager sitting next to him and what happened was shots rang out several shots and she was mortally wounded they drove off and stopped on the boulevard and that's where you see that picture of her slum over and dead it in her car i know that we can't bring her back but think about what it means to shoot at a vehicle she was not a defendant an innocent bystander (inaudible) -

8:41 am
that's why what is going on after the practice police do what they do their attorneys are the ones that get everybody off when we have to remove greg suhr then the city attorney were caught red-handed in you say that my son is at the bottom of the gate fates pirj that's deceit and use the technology cattle's to get off and statute of limitations we have a trial and my son graduated from high school and pro per for my son to have to grow this because of what the police did to him is ludicrous i hope that november 28th someone goes to jeff's office and sees that he is lying and helping to cover up
8:42 am
police scuzzy have to posted sfpd tactical an youtube that corrections everyone in everything in the police reporting that means all the names are across the board crossed out we don't know who to sue so for the city attorney's for paid to cover up police misconduct is inappropriate. >> thank you. next speaker. >> good evening. >> good evening and welcome. >> thank you very much i'm here to practice saying thank you might surprise you but i'd like to thank you for all the things you tried to do like to thank you for forwarding some names of pro seismic chiefs to the mayor and deciding whoever you forwarded names to the mayor to select you can live with because
8:43 am
you will i'd like to thank you for having whatever courage to recommend descent honorable, strong candidates for that position i don't know whether to be be sympathetic to chief chaplin i think you've been set up by the poa by enclosing you they've taint you and caused us to believe you're in their pocket that is an unfortunate situation you have spoken as if you're not at times i'd like to be in position to thank you for speaking stronger hope you will if you turn out to be chief so i'm practicing saying thank you my main thank you to the officers for justice who have tried they very best to right the wrongs at great risk to
8:44 am
themselves at great risk to their lives at great risk to their safety with the poa turned in their back on them so i'd like to thank the officers for justice i'd like to the folks behind me to leave in a moving vehicle to raise their hands those are the folks at risk. >> i'm sorry i'm front of the of you. >> your in front of the me but behind me if you raise your hand. >> i'm behind you everyone raising their hands is at risk for shooting at moving vehicles he get to get in my mine and drive home wondering if 2 policy effects me the folks that raised their hands are in the same position let us say thank you for what you've done.
8:45 am
>> thank you for thanking us. >> mr. gilberty. >> we want a chief of police that wants to be better okay needs to stop the militarization and the suicides of police officers they are second veterans in the country clearly it is not working for them either we need better policies new policies out of boxes maybe experiments with gun also belts what choices do we have continuing this awfulness of abuse the militarization of our police and the peace officers and the choke holds why not stop this it madness and why not do it here we we all have a chance and opportunity a little bit of
8:46 am
good luck amen one candidate asked douglas mccartney advise on sending american soldiers to vietnam and douglas mccartney said no. you can't send american troops to a fight they can't recognize the enemy and since that time we mill transition our police and given them people to recognize as brown and black suspects we need a better alignment we want the police officers in the community to stay alive and prosper that should be our goal. >> thank you 34rig9>> next
8:47 am
speaker. >> good evening and welcome. >> hi good evening jennifer from the coalition on homelessness as you know i was part of the stakeholder group talking about the use of force policy and i just want to review things a little bit and make some recommendations in terms of moving forward we have an intensive and rushed as you recall process to come up with recommendations around use of force that was a series of previous intervene meetings and work that was done there was recommendations that ended upcoming to this body that were approved and we're not put in place and waiting for the police officers to do a meet and confer with the police officers association it, it is in police
8:48 am
officers association - in terms of having the least accountability possible when those processes go forward that shouldn't be in your interests it is a different perspective how to have an audible police department and public safety in terms of not using extensive use of force as well so we just want to strongly recommend because as we are halting those things they have policies that are the old policies that are currently in play we have for example, on the vehicle shootings shooting at vehicles happening about every 8 months in san francisco so you know we really need to move along and have a very strong use of force policy the department of justice is recommending a full ban on shooting at vehicles
8:49 am
should be moving forward the other two recommendations is that came from the community groups should be moving forward as well us from the ebs coalition of homelessness interface with police officers we're particularly concerned thank you thank you, ma'am. >> next speaker. good evening and welcome. >> hello, i grew up in lake view ingleside area you know something i at ocean view park i was beat up in the early noticing by the police at ocean view park i mean it was just it was an all the time occurrence being seen you know what will happen to our music i know like ours is a moving the
8:50 am
fact of the matter you know and it's been ongoing for so long and now instead of the abuse they shooting you know they really shooting and you know something this really has to stop because you know my niece and nephews is coming up i want them to say a normal life you know i don't feel you know that they have to worry about protecting themselves or being a place afraid to run when they see the police you know and if this was - the car was supposedly moving not supposed to be shooting at or no chase especially a residential neighborhood so they say if it was a high-speed chase you you know and it wasn't like a whole bunch
8:51 am
of crime activist take place in the area you know so i wonder why you know this person you know was targeted and why his family can't see him this is never unheard of and what is really going on with the on wooits is in jail it is totally not right and his house got rated why? because he was a witness to the police nothing new nothing new so i hope we can make a difference if not maybe - >> thank you, ms. moore house. >> next speaker. >> >> (clapping.) >> >> good evening and welcome. >> hello, i'm barbara about
8:52 am
being arrested actually whatever my defy divorcee share my rap sheet was not short my divorce was - i have nothing against the police you can only go with the reports put forth to you false police reports are against the law but some people get away with that but i wanted to say when they have like mario woods the officers look like a bunch of dummies they were all filmed to completely you have to realize our on candid camera everyone has a camera and could
8:53 am
you please role a more professional they all subdivided their guns and what's the glory of bringing in a corps one shot will do and if they ever try to train the police officers to wound and maim and not shot to kill they can have another shot it fair charging mario woods was not a big imperfect boy type he had a knife but broken his arm or something thought is sort shoot to wound only is a request i want to put forward here. >> thank you. next speaker. >> good evening and welcome. >> good evening welcome again remember last i seen you going
8:54 am
to have a more slogan make it happen chaplain i did not see you yesterday but with the new chief thing our assumptions it ed lee want to appoint whatever ed lee want we don't want i don't care you're cool behind closed doors we don't need our shrines we came today, the whole community of los angeles view this is a very important and strong statement you should take serious this is a community you may arrest 80 percent of them with trumped up charges didn't deserve to get beat like you heard the sister earlier i think we're going to doing everything we can we're organizing we're trying to get this together regardless of what
8:55 am
your job you know restrictions or whatever you can do like with the hunger strike and everyone trying to show compassionate and humility like general concerns regardless of your jobs you should make our way over there and do something to make sure that brother is alive you know what i mean you guys tried to kill him not like the san francisco police department or the daily city police department you all have drinks together i'm asking you actually demanding that you somebody needs to do something about that like i said you may live off the brothers misery try to make some happen. >> thank you. next speaker.
8:56 am
>> (clapping.) >> good evening and welcome. >> good evening i try to keep my appearances on a rare coalition it is pretty bad because last time i spoke we were choosing the chief the community had no participation equip for a few of you who listened to the community and take it back the community wanted to say a seat at the table to choose the next chief that didn't happen supposedly against the rules of this body i've not seen the rules to choose the next chief you have a poa that condominium i was in the room i work with the task force that negotiated with in in going to we'll not prohibit those protocols to come into play in our meet and confer we promised that what did they do they said we'll rescind that
8:57 am
agreement and not agree there is not only a lack of trust of the community what happens now you've picked the wrong community because we have you've never seen a room full of black people demanding justice from the police department usually white and latino wanted justice for the community it - they'll willing to organize this case with mr. 34078d is one of the most suspicious cases i guarantee i see the footage they're claiming a high-speed chase and ran over an officer that over has a scrape on his arm something is wrong the only grace is that an sfpd not 1409 him a daily police officer that shot him that's our daily grace
